Crosswalk variable now turn to issues related to pedestrian signal control issues.

First, if the signal is designed so that the pushbutton must be pressed in order to bring up the WALK, this raises the priority for APS at the corner. Pedestrians must find and use the pushbutton and the APS locator tone provides a cue that there is a pushbutton at the corner. In addition, actuated crossings are often timed more tightly so the pedestrian needs to begin their crossing during WALK. 4 points are added to the score in this situation; San Francisco modified the tool to add more points for this issue, in response to their advisory committee concerns.
